‘Moving Towards Mental Wellbeing’
Uniting Culture and Health
22nd May 2018, 16h -18h, Room PHS 5B001,
European Parliament, Brussels.
Clare Moody MEP, Julie Ward MEP and The Dance & Creative Wellness Foundation are delighted to invite you to ‘Moving Towards Mental Wellbeing’, an informative forum highlighting innovation in preventative mental health through dance.
Dance has an essential role to play in positive health. Backed by evidence-based research, The Dance & Creative Wellness Foundation promotes adapted dance interventions and the training of dancers to deliver effective, creative approaches that enhance health and mental wellbeing. Such interventions are primed to provide a much needed ‘buffer’ for our healthcare systems as they support positive health, preventing against deterioration to more serious mental health complications and the need for specialist treatment.
